Azra has just turned 16, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold, thanks to the brand new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers, but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit. To the humans she lives among, she's just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach. But behind closed doors, she's learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.
Being Jinn is Azra's new reality. As she grants wishes under the watchful eye of the Afrit council, she remains torn between her two worlds: human and Jinn. Soon, secrets spill. Zars are broken. Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit's reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna. Straddling the line between these worlds becomes impossible.
